PHILADELPHIA — Media resident Cynthia MacLeod, superintendent of Independence National Historical Park, recently received Global Philadelphia Association’s Globy Award for Heritag during the organization’s 2019 Globy Awards held at The Westin in Philadelphia.
The Globy Awards honor leaders whose work has elevated the status of the Philadelphia community on the global stage. Awards are presented in the following categories: Educational Leadership; Historical and Cultural Preservation Leadership; Community Leadership; Corporate Leadership; and Lifetime Achievement.
“The Greater Philadelphia Region is brimming with globally minded individuals who have made immeasurable contributions to our international reputation,” said Robert McNeill, chair of the GPA board of directors and Deloitte Greater Philadelphia managing partner. “It is the Global Philadelphia Association’s privilege to honor local leaders like Cynthia MacLeod who have raised the profile of our city not just in the eyes of fellow Americans but in the eyes of the world.”
As superintendent of Independence National Historical Park, which includes Independence Hall, MacLeod oversees everything from daily park operations and maintenance to the development of new exhibits.
Since joining INHP, she’s helped to facilitate the installation of three new exhibits in the Edgar Allen Poe National Historic Site, the Thaddeus Kosciuszko National Memorial, and the Germantown White House. Her background in architecture and extensive international experience have prepared her for running such a historically and culturally valuable park.
